This is very true. Which is why I don't think there's any way the Habs can win a cup with their current roster. In order to position themselves to make a run in 2-3 years, I'd like to see them give a guy like Eller a more prominent role on the team right away. Also, they should really give guys like Galchenyuk, Gallagher and Leblanc a fair shot at landing top-9 roles as of this season, so that they are ready to become key contributors by then.
